So I finally figured out what’s been going on. The fake Lynda Tran submitted a request to Google to take down my @lyndatran Twitter account from showing up in the results, thus bumping her up to the #1 spot. How dirty is that. Freakin politicians. Argh.
Rich Flynn was my very first web design client after college. For our wedding, I asked him to do a live painting of us in return for a newly updated website and he happily obliged! Thank you, Rich… You are an amazing artist~

Family and Friends – Please don’t fall prey to SEO companies promising they will increase your Search Engine rankings! They convince you to completely redesign your website and then charge a monthly fee which can be quite costly. What they do is install a very ugly template which they use for a lot of other companies, and then they do practically nothing every month and hope that you forget about the fees.
This has happened to many people I know. Just ask me and I will tell you what you need to know, FOR FREE. It takes a little time and work but will save you a lot of money in the long run.
Google Search Ranking update:
Ironically, while writing this, I happen to be struggling to be on top of searches for “Lynda Tran”… but at least I’m on the first page again. I can’t wait for the Presidential Election to be over so this other “Lynda Tran” will fall off the grid. She’s some political commentator or analyst. *yawn*
